    Righteous shot. Guy raises a rifle at 25yds? Didn't really have a lot of choice. Takes some sack to go up against a rifle, but he made it count when he needed to.

    And THAT is why you practice shooing at distances greater than the average .

    Videos like this make civilians like me appreciate all the more what LEO's go through in a matter of seconds. Well done in both protecting his partner and himself.

    Family's lawyer said people will be afraid to call the police if this is how these (mental health) calls are handled. I gotta ask, how else do you handle someone pointing a rifle at people?

    Indeed. After a couple of warnings to get back, she should have been taken to the ground and cuffed for interfering.

    What I can find says the Charlotte officers carry M&P's in 40 S&W...but that looked like a Glock to me...

    A tragedy for all involved, but the office did what he had to do.

    BTW - great shot.

    I wasn't there, so I can't say much. If the officer was as concerned about the overall situation as he seemed as the situation moved along, he was dumb as **** to turn his back on the sister....

    You're right, he should have turned his back on the guy with the rifle. [​IMG]

    Don't be asinine and pretend you think that is what I am saying.
